Mine was 75kmh. I got moaned at, but no minor.

My mate has picked up a minor on the same bike for being to slow so recommended pegging it out of the turn, so I did.

Turns out my mate was just really nervous on the bike. He sold his SV after his first year.

What? They don't do it on the road these days?

We just rode round the block until the examiner jumped out from behind a tree and so long as you didn't run him over you passed.
That was all I done as well :) Although mine stayed to the side and presented his clipboard. I ended up going round twice because there was a car to close to me on the first go. Ironically that was the first time I had ever been on the bike on my own :lol: (I done the direct access course) -edit- I had to do it at 30MPH

I had a friend who didn't get past doing the test. I ended up having to ride his bike to it's MOT so he could sell it! First time I had been on a 125 since I had passed, was quite fun, although I liked my 650 more ;)
